Our Dangerous, Depraved, Sometimes Hilarious Sex Lives

Queer Issue 2009

The enemies of equality are fascinated by the more extreme examples of gay sexual expression. They insist that homosexuality and monogamy are incompatible. They sneak into gay leather events like the Folsom Street Fair to take pictures, which they post to Christian websites. They appear on cable news to insist that all gay men consume feces. Gays and lesbians counter these accusations by insisting that we're not that different, that straight people are kinky too, that lots of gay people are monogamous.

But you know what? They're right: Gay sex is totally fucking nuts.

Something about being gay facilitates the kinds of sexual adventures that our enemies can only dream about. Our struggle for equal rights under the law—for workplace protections, for an end to the ban on gays in the military, for marriage equality (same-sex marriage is now legal in six states)—is succeeding. Many Americans now see queers as no big deal, normal, almost boring. Which is why the religious right is working to shift the focus back to the dirtiest details of our sex lives. And honestly... our sex lives are insane. We know the real reason they're gathering in church basements to share photos taken at Folsom: They're jealous. We're having a blast, and it's killing them. recommended

You might just be on to something. I refuse to believe that kink has a sexual orientation.

I'm only halfway through it, but I just wanna take a moment to say that this is the best issue of the Stranger EVAH. :D

Two complaints:

1) This is deeply narcissistic and stupid.

2) Nothing from Mudede about jizzing into a box of free puppies or whatever it is he does.

Finally a gay lifestyle coming out issue! Was it inspired by the film Bruno? Cohen no doubt will rake in 500 million + because of the ridiculous pc notion that we can't acknowledge exactly what a sexual lifestyle means, for gays and every other sexual identity seeking individual.

I have always noticed that str8 people, especially males, are secretly fascinated by gay lifestyles because they think we know something they don't.
